  1. Live edge floating top hall table

    I just finished off building this hall table for my own home as a functional piece AND to be used to illustrate certain joinery methods and design principles to my prospective clients. Dimensions: 1350mm wide x 300mm deep x 850mm high Material: Redgum legs and highly figured drawer fronts...
  2. Chopping block

    Finally decided to make a chopping block out of some scraps, using Jarrah, Tasmanian Oak and Merbau. I'd figured out the basic "how to" and just went ahead. I particularly like the light flecs in the Merbau grain. Finished with vegetable oil. As a side note I used Tite Bond II and I'm not sure...
  3. A baby cot for my sister

    My sister had her first baby back in February of this year. She asked me to build her a baby cot and asked me to build it like a photo she found online. The design was some mass produced plastic and pressed metal garbage. So I told her that "I'll do something a little better than that, so leave...
  4. Box Usurper - adjustable board game shelving

    There was a successful kickstarter called BoxThrone, which is a modular/adjustable board-game specific storage system. Unfortunately, its metal/wire shelving and looks kinda janky. The idea is bookcases are bad because if you store games vertically stuff falls out, or if you store things...
  5. Teardrop Urn

    Segmented teardrop bowl turned from Jarrah and Tasmanian Ash 150 mm diameter by 150 mm high. Comments welcome.
  6. 1930's Model A Roadster

    First attempt at something this complex and am relatively pleased and proud of my effort. Even managed to learn how to ebonise wood thanks to another LJ I'll definetly saddle up again having learnt so much especially in the wheel department. THANKS LJ's for the assistance…... Cheers Kerry
  7. Krenov Style Cabinet *Grade 10 Major Project*

    This is my Krenov Style Cabinet I made for my Grade 10 major project for school!!!! It is constructed all out of Tasmanian Oak (Australian hardwood) with the door pulls being made out of Jarrah (another Australian hardwood). This was quite a challenging project for me seeing it is the second...
  8. Tassie oak hall table for mum

    This follows on style and material wise from the dining table I built last month for mum - two major pieces of furniture for her, and one for my sister this year and… none for me :( This is the first 'occasional' table I've built, and in Australian parlance, "its built like a brick @#$ house"...
  9. Tassie oak set of drawers/dresser for mum

    This is the third in the series of furniture for mum, which will be now called the 'Diane Collection'. Halltable Dining table Frame is all solid tassie oak, the side panels are veneered MDF, which has a more 'straw' colour than the typical tassie oak pinkish hue. Full extension drawer...
  10. Tassie oak dining table for mum

    Built a table for mum, out of tassie oak (not actually an oak, also goes by the name vic ash) - a very common hardwood in the eastern states of Australia. Similar density to hard maple, though a bit more open grained. All in all a solid 'moderate density' hardwood, bordering on the softer side...
  11. Outdoor table

    I recently moved into a new place which lucky for me had a large entertaining deck at the back of the house. Ambitiously i decided that i didn't like the idea of purchasing a cheap glass table and chairs and that i would build a large table to fill the space nicely and provide a great place to...
  12. Tasmanian Oak TV unit

    This is the fifth in the series of furniture for mum, which will be now called the 'Diane Collection'. Halltable Dining table Set of Drawers coffee table/side table I haven't posted. Top and frame is all solid tassie oak, the side panels are veneered MDF. Drawer boxes are just...
  13. Easel Two

    For a while I have been trying to come up with a simple design to make a folding easel case for my son and nephews to make (currently 7, 8 & 9 years old). This was a complete failure in that regard. But not a bad design result. Two days of solid work in the shop and this is the outcome. My...
  14. The Shogun (Queen platform bed)

    I've never built a bed frame before. Working at this scale is exhausting and barely fits in my shop (everything pushed to the walls!). Solid tassie oak, (Organoil) danish oil then shellac for the finish. The headboard is on a 5 degree angle, with the darker bits just being stained (walnut →...
  15. "JJJ" bed

    Friends commissioned me to make a queen bed for them. Even though I finished this up last week, it feels like it was forever ago because I have space in my workshop again! Beds suck for taking up space. Everything except the slats are tasmianian oak (/vic ash), they are pine flooring ripped in...
  16. Tasmanian Oak Mini Hall/Coffee table

    The endless journey of furniture-for-family continues! Just when I thought I had cleared out all the requested furniture, mum decided "just one more!". This time around, the only material needed was for two legs, all the rest was from offcuts of previous projects for her (~10 or so). The...
  17. Moxon Vise

    Awhile back we bought a bit of "scrap" quality blackwood for $15. This used about $2 worth of that, absolutely gorgeous stuff, though it was twisted/warped/knotty. I was able to get what I needed from it. Tas oak is a poor choice for the handles, but I have lots of that laying around. Semi-open...

    The making process can be viewed on YouTube Four lazy susan's. The first image is Tasmanian Oak and Tassie Myrtle strips. ~450mm diameter. 2nd: Tassie Oak and Myrtle strips. ~498mm diameter 3rd: Tassie Oak and Myrtle strips. ~475mm diameter 4th: Tasmanian Myrtle and Tasmanian Blackwood...
  19. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Hundreds of professional football players in our very own nation are currently locked out, living at well below their seven-figure salary level. As a result, they have been deprived of their life-sustaining pay for several months. But you can help! For only $27,080 a month, or about $902.67 a...
